I was one of a select few guests that was invited to visit the Cherry Time farm in Worcester this past weekend. We had a fantastic day picking cherries, learning all about cherry agriculture, and enjoying a picnic lunch in the cherry orchards. I've always loved using cherries in desserts but after learning how tricky they are to grow, I have a new appreciation for these gorgeous little fruits!I returned home with an abundant harvest of plump and juicy cherries, just crying out to be used in a fancy, festive dessert. I really wanted to hero the cherries, so much...

Sponsored.What better way to take advantage of winter’s oranges, grapefruits and mandarins than to make a bright and beautiful cake that really shows them off? As impressive as it looks, this upside down citrus yoghurt cake is surprisingly easy to make. In fact, the striking slices of citrus fruit do all the hard work! After arranging the slices at the bottom of the cake tin, they are covered in a syrup, then the cake batter, then baked all together. The fruit slices cook in the syrup resulting in a sweet and sticky marmalade-like topping.The cake batter uses NutriDay Double Cream...

I've been waiting somewhat impatiently for ruby grapefruits to come into season. Not only is their beautiful red flesh a delight to look at, but their zesty and slightly bitter flavour is unlike any other fruit. Grapefruits work wonderfully in desserts, where that refreshing citrus flavour offsets both the sweetness and richness that could otherwise be cloying. There's no question that gin and grapefruit work well together in cocktails, and the same is true for this cheesecake! Although adding it is technically optional, a touch of gin really brings this cheesecake to life and makes it something special. A neutral...

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready to see my friends again! It's been 6 weeks of lockdown now - that's 6 weeks of not leaving the house at all. Although I've always been quite a home-body and enjoyed spending my days in the kitchen, it's not quite the same when you don't have anyone to share your creations with. My husband has some of it, but he actually doesn't have much of a sweet-tooth! So although it still feels like an absolute age until we can have friends round for dinner again, I've already planned the...

Sponsored Have you ever tasted a soufflé? These gorgeously puffy little cakes are slightly crisp on the outside and light and mousse-like on the inside. They can be sweet or savoury, and are made by folding whipped egg whites and a flavour component (e.g. fruit pulp, melted chocolate, cheese etc) into a custard-like base. If you thought you couldn’t recreate this classic French dessert at home, think again! I’ve recently discovered an incredible shortcut that will make soufflé-baking a cinch. By using Danone Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard as your base, you need only add a little fruit purée, fold in some meringue and voila! Not...

SponsoredTrifle is a classic Christmas dessert, and for good reason! What's not to love about layers of dipped biscuits, creamy custard, jelly, fruit and whipped cream. All the colours and textures work so beautifully together. I got to thinking that a frozen version of this traditional treat would make for a refreshing change, and would be perfect for our hot climate here in South Africa! This Trifle Ice Cream Cake is sure to wow your guests and delight the senses! It's made up of layers of finger biscuits, creamy Danone Ultramel Vanilla Custard ice cream, peach sorbet, strawberry jelly ice cream...

We've spoken about dessert mash-ups before (in my Lemon Meringue Fudge recipe). Only good things can happen when you merge the best elements of two desserts into one sensational combo. Take the spiced apples and crunchy crumble topping of an apple crumble. Now add in the rich creaminess of a vanilla cheesecake. The result is a spectacular showstopper of a dessert. Crunchy, creamy, fruity and cinnamony. As if eating two desserts in one go wasn't decadent enough, the addition of a salted caramel sauce takes this Apple Crumble Cheesecake to the next level of indulgence.This dessert requires a little effort, but your hard work will...

You may be surprised to find a somewhat healthier post happening today! However, I can assure you this Granadilla and Granola Breakfast Tart is healthy enough to have for breakfast, but still decadent enough to feel like an absolute treat. I first tested out this recipe for Easter brunch and was not very impressed with the result. The yoghurt filling very quickly made the granola base soggy. I could barely slice it, it was such a mess. Luckily this problem was easy to solve by simply straining the yoghurt before-hand. This very simple process simply removes excess liquid and...

Not only do I love raspberries, but I adore mini desserts of any kind! I love the idea of serving a pretty individual cake instead of a comparatively chunky slice. It's just so much more delicate and pretty. That's why making these Raspberry and Lemon Mini Cakes was a no-brainer for me. And here's the thing, you don't need any fancy mini cake tins to pull this off, just a good ol' baking tray and a round cookie cutter! Yes there will be a teeny bit of cake left over after cutting, but it surely won't go to waste. If you...

Happy New Year fellow bakers, dessert-lovers and friends! Are you among the many who are starting the year on a healthy note, cutting down on sugar, dairy or fat? Then this Brown Sugar Peach Ice Cream recipe is just for you! Not because it’s sugar-, dairy- or fat-free, but because you’re going to need an indulgent dessert to dive into to reward yourself for being so healthy! Use lovely fresh peaches in season for maximum flavour, but tinned peaches will do fine out of season.   Ingredients: For the Ice Cream base: 375ml milk 375ml cream pinch of salt 4 large egg yolks 185ml brown sugar For the Peach Swirl 350g...
